High School team 
fall racing season

BCR Juniors High School Rowing Team offers competitive training and regional racing opportunities for athletes in 9th through 12th grade. No rowing experience is required to join the high school team. Athletes are expected to commit to 5 practices a week for the duration of the season. Opportunities to train year-round are offered, and for athletes looking to excel in rowing, year-round participation is encouraged.  Rowers are expected to attend and participate fully in all practices, which will include on-water workouts, erg training, running, and general fitness training. Rowers will be training for the 5000-meter race distance and should plan to travel to several regional races in the Fall season. Rowers will be eligible for participation in regattas at the coaches’ discretion based on fitness, skill, effort, and practice attendance.

Swim Test

The Swim Test Verification Form is available for download below. The swim test can be completed at any pool of your choice. If a rower is unable to complete the swim test, a life jacket must be worn at all times while in the boat. Life jackets are carried for all rowers by coaches in a motorized launch that accompanies our athletes during practice.
